Deep learning has recently gained a lot of attention on account of its incredible success in many complex data-driven applications, such as image classification. However, deep learning is quite user-hostile and is thus difficult to apply. For example, it is tricky and slow to train a large model which may consume a lot of memory. This thesis introduces our investigations and approaches towards these challenges. First, we have conducted a comprehensive analysis of optimization techniques for deep learning systems, including stand-alone and distributed training. Second, we have designed and developed a distributed deep learning system, named SINGA, which tackles the usability problem and realizes optimization techniques for distributed training. SINGA provides a flexible system architecture for running different distributed training frameworks. Last, we have proposed deep learning based methods for effective multi-modal retrieval on top of SINGA, which outperform state-of-the-art approaches.
